    Another issue is that as part of their oversight duties, one would almost think that these surveillence systems would have to be pre-approved before they were built.

    Instead they're coming as a surprise to Congress long after the fact.

    Which means that even if Congress could shut the programs down, they'll just go off and build something else similar.  Which they've already done once - after TIA was deep-sixed to great fanfare, they just went ahead and made something similar (but probably even more sinister)
